Your unique genius is a skill, a talent, something that you do so well, that
comes so naturally to you, that you may not even view it as a gift, as an
ability . . . or as a marketable opportunity.
Your unique genius is something you do, or have done, for so long, maybe so
effortlessly, perhaps so artlessly, that you consider it to just be part of
It is also something that you enjoy immensely.
In short, your unique genius is something you are damn good at and have a
fun time doing.
Some of our great talents are more easily identifiable than others. Some
people sing beautifully, some people write eloquently, some paint or draw
effortlessly, some tell hilarious jokes on a moment’s notice, others hit
tennis balls 100 miles an hour, some have a knack for languages, others seem
to always match their outfits just right, some just get the party started.
But other talents might be less tangible, harder to identify. Encouraging
others to be courageous. Consistently and attentively listening to others.
Emitting confidence. Instilling hope. Comprehending information. Ironing
out details. Bringing good energy. Anticipating. Organizing.
Understanding. Compelling. Fundraising. Leading. Motivating.
These are harder to see, more difficult to pinpoint, but nonetheless are
talents . . . marketable talents.
So . . . all nice and good, but how does one make money from any of this?
No need to worry about the money now. Don’t leave the law now. Get an idea of your unique genius first, while the bills are still being paid. It will
shape up from there. The money will follow.
